ALL AMERICAN PRESIDENTS ARE RELATED

The terms "first cousins", "second cousins", "third cousins", describe the "degree" of the cousin relationship. The degree of two cousins' relationship is determined by the number of generations to their closest common ancestor.  When the cousins are not the same generation, they are described as "removed". The smaller number of generations to the common ancestor is used to determine the degree, and the difference in generations determines the number of times removed. Note that the ages of the cousins are irrelevant to the definition of the cousin relationship.

Genealogical relationships of Presidents of the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This page discusses some of the genealogical relationships of, and among, Presidents of the United States.

Contents

[hide]

[edit] Direct descent

This is a list of United States Presidents who are related to each other by direct descent.

Two other pairs of Presidents have shared a surname. Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson have no known relationship. Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt were fifth cousins, though they were more closely related through Franklin's wife Eleanor Roosevelt (née Roosevelt), who was Theodore's niece.

[edit] Indirect relatives

This is a list of some of the closer blood relations, other than direct descent, between U.S. Presidents. (See Cousin chart to understand the terms used here.)

[edit] Second cousins

[edit] Third cousins

[edit] Fourth cousins

[edit] Fifth cousins

[edit] Sixth cousins

[edit] Seventh cousins

[edit] Eighth cousins

[edit] Ninth cousins

[edit] Tenth cousins

The list above includes the closer, more significant relationships. Family trees, particularly those in a limited geographic area, tend to converge relatively rapidly and many family trees going back ten generations or more will connect to more than one dozen U.S. Presidents, if all female ancestors and their descendants are traced. This is why, for example, it is not mentioned that through Robert Wyngate of Sharpenhoe, Bedfordshire, J.Q. Adams and W.H. Harrison are eighth cousins.

There are also numerous relationships by marriage which are not presented in this article. For example, Richard Nixon was the father-in-law of Dwight Eisenhower's grandson. George Washington's half aunt married James Madison's half first cousin once removed. Woodrow Wilson married (as his second wife) the great-great-great-niece of Thomas Jefferson.

[edit] Presidents related to royalty

[edit] Presidents related to British royalty

This is a list of presidents of royal descent. Note that since all of these Presidents are related to English or Scottish monarchs, they are also all related to each other, though very distantly. Also note that the ancestry is from the most recent royal ancestor through their younger children who did not receive royal title or whose patents of nobility were not passed on because of rules of primogeniture.

As a result, all of the listed people are direct descendants of Alfred the Great. All but two of them are also descended from William I of England with the exceptions of Rutherford Hayes and Warren Harding. It should be noted that most of these royal ancestors were born before the Black Death killed much of the population of Britain in 1349.

In addition, according to Genealogics and Roglo, HM Queen Elizabeth II is among the closest living relatives of George Washington, through their descent from Augustus Warner, Burgess of Virginia.
